The Monastery Loch is the smallest in the fishery complex at 2.5 acres but while it may lack size it certainly makes up for this with action! The evening rises, particularly in late spring and early summer, can be awesome. The water literally boils as the fish switch on to huge hatches of buzzers. This tidy little water is also a firm favourite with beginners because the banks are cut short - less to snag when learning to cast. However, again do not be fooled by the size of the water as there are some really large fellows in residence - the largest fish taken so far being a rainbow of 20lb 12oz.
World record casting champion, Hywel Morgan, shows off his skills on the Monastery Loch at a recent Scierra Tackle Open Day.
Not bad for a small water!
